unforced errors probably more so in the romney column than in the obama column until denver this past week. in the highly polarized e lack or ituate environment. both campaigns have strategically been pealing repealing to the respective political bases. what's been unusual about the election cycle is most voters have picked sides early. we do our polling even as right after the conventions, it looks like the final weekend of the campaign. most voters know who they support. they tell us their they are firmly committed to the candidate and the number of undecided voters has been surprisingly very, very low. single digits. it's not about persuasion. it's more about mobilization both of the conventions were like that. i think in the next three or four weeks we'll see lot more. mobilizes folks to come out because of the early voting which started in so many states. the middle is shrinking. as far as these campaigns are concerned. bash is going to talk about shortly about how there is still a middle to america once you get beyond the campaign labels. but clearly those what drive strategy in camp

and others not criticism for week or two. probably longer. gives him a respite and there could be more questioning about obama's performance among democrats. in the pew study, what seeps in. coverage eventually seeps in and affects mood of swing voters. >> the question becomes, romney had a good night tonight. does that give him momentum where that changes the dynamics of the campaign and come in again the in next debate and build on that and give two more dominant performances? or, do we have the vp debate next week that changes the narrative once again? i think you can expect the president to come in stronger and crisper next time. the president is a fierce competitor. he does not like to lose. so i think we can all assume that he will go back and do many so more debate prep. >> what we'll see from the obama staff and surrogates in their appearances next 20 four hours push this back being a choice between two people. mitt romney moved it back more referendum on the president. we have the official obama spin. this is the literal party line, what they're going to be saying in their tv

that as much in these campaigns? >> guest: campaigns like the obama campaign is smart like that. they do send people out to do the i.t.. in a statistical model in 2008, the obama campaign was basically modeling the electorate in the swing states every week which was to say that they would put out tens of thousands of pay phone calls and all the volunteers doing the talking to the voters and that is all of the data their body for the commercial lenders feeding into these algorithms and every week they come up with a new projection of how each individual would vote and whether they would vote and allowed by the canvassers to talk to people about particular issues, and so, there is less of a need to do all of your identification work individually. it helps to have the volunteer activities. but then one of the shift in the obama campaign this year that they are going to be using the canvas for more for persuasion and not just for the ayittey in his berkeley the campaigns usually thought of it as i used my volunteer to do this sort of a grunt work of going out and asking people who they are going

? >> i think campaigns like the obama campaign is smart about. you know, they do send people to do ids and those ids feed into their statistical models. in 2008, the obama campaign was basically modeling the electorate in swing states every week, which was to say that they would put out tens of thousands of payphone calls and have all the stuff for volunteers to talk to voters. that data and commercial vendors were feeding into these algorithms and every week they came up with the new projection of how each individual would vote, whether they were so, what issues they cared about. so that allows you to sort of guided canvassers to talk to people about particular issues. and so, there's less of a need to do all of your densification work individually. it helps to have volunteered to the feeding and that the more data points you have, the better predictions will be. one of the shifts will be using their canvassers far more for persuasion and not just for ids. historically campaigns usually thought of it as a use for volunteers to do the work of asking people who they're going to vote for

the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden

life? let's listen to president obama as he answered that question in the debate this week to inspect the first role of the government is to keep people safe. that is the most basic function, and as commander-in-chief, that is something that i have worked on and thought about every single day that i've been in the oval office. but i also believe that government has the capacity, the federal government has the capacity to help open up opportunities and create ladders of opportunity and create frameworks' where the american people can succeed. the genius of america is the free enterprise system and freedom, and the fact that people can go out there and start a business, work on an idea, make their own decisions, but as abraham lincoln understood, there's also things we do better today. so, in the middle of the civil war, abraham lincoln said let's help finance the transcontinental railroad. let's start the national academy of sciences. let's start the land grant colleges because we want to give the gateway if they are giving opportunity we are all going to be better off. that doesn't re

five weeks, what, the next four years will be no better than last four years, something like that. very positive. if you elect obama. i happen to believe that star and that's why i'm not for reelection president obama but is not a very inspiring forward-looking spoken about what mid-romney will do. it's hard to blame the guy who wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast, casting approach to democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about ron is just bush, there is a war on women and all that but i don't go get the kind of frame you would like. i'm a little is pessimistic. i do think reality matters, as we've been saying. we are going to hit the cliff in all kinds of ways. be any fiscal cliff in the real clip in 2013 is you can't sustain these deficits obviously for too long because they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or buy treasury notes forever. the economy is slow and they will be coming into another dip. they are foreign policy challenges i think the next president will have a moment between november 7, i agree just to begin nov
